Brutal beating ends bright future
Father left desolate by slaying
Man, 23, dies after restaurant fight Suspect charged in homicide
Nick McCABE- LOKOS Staff Reporter
Christopher SHELTON had a promising future ahead of him. At just 23, he'd modelled in New York and Milan. He wanted to study law at the University of Toronto. He and his girlfriend had talked about getting married.
But early Friday morning, all those hopes were shattered violently after he was beaten outside a 24-hour restaurant in Toronto's east end.
He died in hospital that evening.
The news left his father devastated.
"We've all had a really hard time. Right now, I've got these involuntary convulsions going on," David SHELTON said in an interview.
Police say witnesses: helped them identify a suspect in the slaying and yesterday afternoon a 30-year-old Toronto man was charged with second-degree murder.
The news of an arrest came as a relief to Shelton's grieving family.
Shelton's father says family meant a lot to his son.
"His natural mother has got two smaller children and (Christopher) loved them very much, and all his nieces and nephews," his father said.
"He was very involved with his family."
Christopher's parents divorced when he was 3.
Police say that early Friday, Shelton and two Friends had been out at the clubs in Toronto's entertainment district. Around 3: 30 a.m., the group stopped at the Golden Wave Chinese Restaurant at Broadview Ave. and Gerrard St. E.
Shelton and another man got into an argument, although it's unclear what sparked the dispute. Investigators say the two men didn't know each other.
As Shelton was leaving, police say, he was attacked. He was punched in the head, then fell down and hit his head on the concrete.
Police say the attacker walked away, then turned and returned to Shelton as he lay on the ground. He kicked the young man in the head.
The attacker then left in a taxicab.
Shelton's Friends called 911 and he was rushed to St. Michael's Hospital, where he was put on life support.
Yesterday around noon, a police surveillance team, canine unit and homicide officers arrested the suspect near Jones Ave. and Dundas St. W.
Tyson TALBOT, 30, of Woodfield Rd., has been charged with second-degree murder. He is to appear at Old City Hall court today.
Shelton's father recalled fond memories of his son. When Christopher was about 12, they went fishing together in Florida. At one point in his life, Christopher wanted to be a professional chef and was passionate about cooking,.
Recently, he had been working as a bartender at the Hilton Toronto hotel.

Guelph man killed unloading rail car
Guelph - Investigators spent much of yesterday examining a Guelph job site where a city man was killed on Wednesday afternoon while unloading a railroad car.
William Michael CHAMBERLAIN, 41, was discovered lying on the ground about 1: 30 p.m. at Safetran Canada on Edinburgh Road South. He had been using a boom truck to unload 40-foot sections of steel track.
Richard DEN BOK, a senior investigator with the ministry of labour, said that nobody actually saw what happened to Chamberlain.
"We're trying to get things pieced back together," DEN BOK said. "We don't know where he was struck or where he was standing or anything like that."
It is believed that CHAMBERLAIN, known to co-workers as Mike, was using a hand-held control box to operate the large boom, which is equipped with a claw for picking up the steel rails.
Wayne PEGELO, Safetran's Guelph supervisor, said Chamberlain - who had only worked for the company since April - was not the kind of employee who would cut corners to save time.
"We're trying to figure out what happened," he said. "He was a very safety-conscious employee; that's why we think something must have gone wrong."
Safetran is a distributor of rail products. Canadian manager Joel STEVENS flew from Winnipeg yesterday morning upon hearing of the tragedy, and company president John TALIRICO was expected to arrive last night from West Virginia.
"We want to make sure everything's taken care of properly," STEVENS said, adding that the primary concern was for Chamberlain's widow and sons, aged 14 and nine.
"We don't want to put any more undue stress on these people," Stevens said, adding that Safetran has "a good insurance plan."
STEVENS never met CHAMBERLAIN, but spoke to the man often on the phone.
"He was an extremely valuable employee," he said. "Mike was the kind of guy - you could just put a task in front of him and he'd take care of it."
DEN BOK said investigators were trying yesterday to determine whether all the equipment was working properly.
"Within a few days, we should have a better idea of what happened," he said.
